Has Head Start been your Window of Opportunity?
Right now, more than 6,343,000 American children under 6 years old are leading lives shaped by hunger, stress, and need. Head Start can offer them a way out, but only a fraction of eligible children are able to attend.
Let's show the country and Congress how important Head Start's Window of Opportunity can be for America's most vulnerable children. One Window of Opportunity (below) gives a child's view on the difference an early education experience can make. This year, NHSA is gathering the stories of the 27 million Head Start alumni and their parents, teachers and supporters. Together your stories make a powerful statement about the impact of Head Start and the need to preserve it in the future.
